To recognize the positive impacts of Registered Apprenticeships on Arizona's economy, Governor Doug Ducey signed a proclamation declaring Arizona Apprenticeship Week to coincide with the National Apprenticeship Week on November 14 -20, 2022. View Arizona's Apprenticeship Week proclamation.
Apprenticeships are a valuable resource for both job seekers and employers. As of October 2022, there are more than 5,000 apprentices participating in over 250 apprenticeship programs in Arizona. Get involved and receive the benefits of being an apprentice, or hosting a program.
Known as “the other four-year degree,” apprenticeships give participants the unique opportunity of learning a new trade while also receiving a salary and a nationally-recognized completion certificate to help them launch a new career.
Employers with Registered Apprenticeship programs have the opportunity to develop and retain a skilled and loyal labor force while also reducing turnover, creating a more diverse workforce.
